20 The Rogue Warrior Leadership Code I will test my theories on myself first. I will be my own guinea pig. I will be totally committed to what I believe, and I will risk all that I have for these beliefs I will back my subordinates all the way when they take reasonable risks to help me achieve my goals I will not punish my people for making mistakes. I will only punish them for not learning from their mistakes I will not be afraid to take action, because I know that almost any action is better than inaction. And I know sometimes not acting is the boldest action of all. I will always make it crystal clear where I stand and what I believe. I will always be easy to find: I will be at the center of battle.
